The Day After: How Much Did We Get?


All things considered, we got off easy.

The north country received about a foot of snow Friday - the exact number varied a bit, depending on where you are.

7 News meteorologist Joe LaPlante reported 12 inches of snow in Lowville, 10.5 inches in Massena, 10 in Watertown and 9.5 inches in Highmarket.

By comparison, Harden, Connecticut received a staggering 40 inches of snow in Friday night's blizzard and New York City, which was not on the bad end of the storm, got 12 inches.

There are states of emergency in five states, including New York.

Four deaths have been blamed on the storm.

More than 100 people were stranded overnight on the Long Island Expressway.

The mess will take days to clean up.

"If you really don't need to leave the house for an urgent matter, don't leave the house," Governor Andrew Cuomo said Saturday.

"There are crews all over the state working to clear the roads - it becomes more complicated when people are on the road."
